Chelsea do not want Victor Moses to go on loan and will reportedly only allow a permanent exit, scuttling Everton’s hopes of a deal.
The 22-year-old Nigeria international winger worked with Roberto Martinez during their time at Wigan and, following the arrival of a new boss at Stamford Bridge, Everton had hoped they could talk Jose Mourinho into a season-long loan deal.
But the Chelsea boss is not keen on a temporary exit for Moses, with claims that he will only consider a permanent departure for the former Crystal Palace man.
Moses, who made a big impact at Chelsea last season – scoring 10 goals in 43 appearances, is understood to be valued at £8million and Everton are unlikely to fork out such an amount.
Moses’ future at Chelsea remains unclear as he is some way down the pecking order at Stamford Bridge and his game-time is likely to be limited next season although there are several other Premier League clubs keeping an eye on him.
